Orthodontic Emergencies



What is an Orthodontic Emergency?


There are very few true orthodontic emergencies. Please call our office during regular business hours if any of your appliances come loose. Our staff members will help determine what requires immediate repair and what can wait until your next visit. If a traumatic event occurs after hours, please call the office and you will be prompted how to leave an emergency page.



What to Do in Case of a Broken Appliance


Call our office as soon as possible during normal business hours if you break or loosen any of your appliances. Please do not come directly to the office – by calling us, you will allow us to create a time to see you. Even if you have a regular appointment scheduled, call to notify us if you need an appliance repaired.
